Junior High News A very Interesting program was presented before the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades Friday morning. In charge of the program were: Daisy Smith, Mae Shepherd, and Velma Jean Caudell. A radio program was 1ml tated and possibly a very good Imitation. (Maybe we think so but a radio station might have contradicted us). Who knows! We hope not and anyway we have our hopes. Now to go back to my subject; Velma Jean was the announcer. To tell the name of the station It was Ku-Ku, and probably it was. Ruth McCord sang the last verse of "Nut Brown Maiden." A sale was taking place some where because the announcer seemed to interest the people by telling some ot the bargains. Then came Professor Wata- snozsle, (WhewI What a name!) Several ot the grade children Imitated different animals, , Forrest bade us farewell. "then What tlonal! a sensation! Ah. sensa- Annella Waller.

Senior Newt The seniors are exceptionally busy this week due to play practices plus "earnest endeavor" to complete text books. We are proud of our senior athlete, Carl Holden, who won first honors in the shot put at the district track meet at Thomas Jefferson high school, Council Bluffs, held May 13. Here's to his success at the state meet at Ames May 20. With tire farm bill finally enacted Iowa farmers are wondering fust what it will mean to theft, the mortgage section provides that those who hate loans from the Federal Land Hank ol Omaha, and whose loans are in good standing, will get a reduction in theif interest rate to 4H per cent within titty days after the passage of the act and will not be required to pay anything on the principal for five years. the Federal Land Bank now holds eighty-eight million dollars in farm loans in Iowa with an average interest rate of 6.3 per cent this interest rate benefit will aid, without question, a considerable number of Iowa farmers. Provisions are also made for scaling down the principal and interest rates on mortgages held by other than the Federal Land Bank. Another section of the farm bill has to do with control of acreage and farm production. Processors of corn and hogs are being called together at once to decide definitely on a plan to follow to bring back higher prices to the corn and hog farmers of Iowa. In view of the possibility of the government offering Inducement to farmers to reduce their corn acreage, economists at Iowa State by means of a processing tat. fh* tax will be collected by the internal revenue department. It will be levied gradually and kept within reasonable bounds, always sublet td the control of the Bec=- retary of Agriculture, and based on correct conditions of supply and rate of consumption. the third section of the farm bill given President Roosetelt teeans to reflate the general price level. Market Pif, Dairy Calf Club Entries Often Yet It is not too late for any boy or girl, who has reached his tenth birthday and not his twentieth, to enter 4-H club work. Pig club entries in the market barrow class may be made until June 1, 1938. Pigs for this project must be farrowed after March 1, 1933 and must be fed and owned by the member for three months. Each member can feed from one to five barrows of any breed. Pigs must be weighed at the start and close ot the feeding period and a record kept on alt feed used. Entries on first year dairy calf club work close June 16. Calves for this project can be Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Hotsteln or Jersey heifers. No boy or girl 1 may have more than two calves Plan* ate being cofrpYeteA by the attention anttnal husbandry department of Iowa State college and county Farm Bttreans to contact twine feeding demonstration* fn over fifty eoimtiea fa three of tonr tots ol five pigs each will be fed in each demonstration. the pigs will be weighed. marked, and put in tots ot 1-& to % acre about June 1. in most of the demonstrations pigs will be about twelve weets old at the start of the feeding period. Alt lots win be self-fed and all lots will be on a clover, rape ot alfalfa pasture. The purpose of the demonstration Is to show swine feeders the rate and cost of gain from the various rations when ted under farm conditions and also the value ot a good pasture in the ration. tn each demonstration one lot will be ted com, whole oats, minerals, and pasture; the second lot corn, whole oats, tankage, minerals, and pasture; the third lot com and a mixture of eighty per cent ground oats and twenty per cent tankage, minerals, and pasture.

After a feeding period of about 100 days the pigs will be weighed again and the results ot the demonstration figured. A county "Swine Feeders" day will be held at that time so that anyone interested may see the results. the Mills county swine feeding demonstration will be conducted by Carl Holden on the Henry Hoiden farm west ot Malvern. A uniform group of fifteen pigs will be selected from his herd, weighed, marked, and started on feed by June 6. the pigs will bo put In three different lots, flvo tn a lot. and each lot will be fed a different ration on alfalfa pasture. Material and equipment la coming from various sources, Anyone having an extra feeder or waterer that could be used in this experiment should get in touch with Carl.

In any family discussion, the movement la en— Oil City Derrick, Garden Crop* Getwratl? fteml 3tullow CaltfrfttroB the main reason for cultivation, according to E. 3. Hahwr, ot Iowa State college, is to prevent W«wd growth and not to eonseft* the moisture. Ail garden crops need some shallow cultivation. Frequently amateur gardeners dig too deeply when they hoe. Carrots and parsnips ha+e well-developed top roots extending about eight or ten laches from the base of the plant. Deep hoeing (below two or three Inches) will cut out them feeding roots. Mnskmelons and cantaloupes likewise have extensive shallow toots and poof deep roots. They should be cultivated accordingly. Onions too are shallow root etops. No cultivation ought to be more than an inch deep. tn a series of tests at Iowa State college, lettuce in deeply hoed plots yielded one-third less than when the soil was merely scraped with the hoe. Mulching Is not necessary. A straw mulch on the larger crops such as tomatoes, however, sometimes Is valuable. This straw mutch, placed on In the latter part ot the summer, Increased the yield on tomatoes by thirty per cent in an experiment at Iowa e. this experiment was conducted In a normal sea* son. During an extremely hot and dry year (1930) this straw mutch resulted In lower yields, this Is explained by the tact that the soil was too hot under the mulch during this particular season. Potatoes do not need much "hilling up." the main reason for hilling Is to protect the top tubers from being scorched by the sun. Hilling slightly may also make harvesting easier, the potatoes should not be hilled up when they are planted. As they are cultivated during the season, a smalt amount of dirt may be scraped around the base ot the plants.
